Tom Cecil makes numbers cool

Design Milk is still one of my favourite design blogs, and Tom Cecil is one of the most interesting designers they’d featured recently.

Currently based in East London, Cecil is a mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Sheffield. His life-long curiosity about objects and how they work is evident in his work.

His ‘Random Number’ collection are made from a single sheet of plywood, where he takes 128 random numbers and a sequence of mathematical functions to generate the geometry for the three intersecting objects forming the pieces.

Sounds like a clinical way to design, yes – but the results are interesting and quirky. Check out his site for more.
